Last week President Biden delivered a historic speech alerting the American people to the threat posed to democracy by Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans. It was a long overdue wake up call to take seriously the ultra-rightists who have already committed gross acts of violence in pursuit of a totalitarian, Trump-led dystopia.
Biden’s speech was predictably criticized by conservative politicians and pundits. Some (i.e. Tucker Carlson) excreted their knee-jerk disapproval without even watching the speech. They used what they assumed would be in it to further whine about Biden’s accurate assessment of MAGA’s anti-democratic thuggery. That included griping about Biden’s prior characterization of the MAGA crowd as “semi-fascist.”
Thankfully, Trump can always be relied upon to validate the critiques of his noxious behavior. Whenever he he is accused of some malfeasance, he will inevitably do or say something that proves it. Such was the case Monday morning when Trump took to his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, to fume the following…
“So they riffled through the living quarters of my 16 year old son, Barron, and the loved and respected former First Lady of the United States, Melania, but, despite proven high crimes and treason, and just plain common theft, all pointed out in the Laptop from Hell (and elsewhere), they never Raided or Broke Into the house of Hunter Biden or, perhaps even more importantly, the house of Joe Biden – A treasure trove! This is a Country that’s unfair and broken. We are truly a Nation in Decline!!!”
First of all, it is almost certainly a lie that the FBI “riffled” through Barron’s room. This is the first time in nearly a month since the search warrant was executed that Trump ever mentioned it. He now appears to be using his own minor son as a shield for his legal tribulations.
Furthermore, Trump is overtly lying about “proven high crimes and treason” by Hunter Biden, for which there is no actual proof. Trump is merely regurgitating tiresome and baseless accusations that he has been yammering about for years. And it takes an extreme measure of gall to complain about “common theft” when he’s referring to the laptop of Hunter Biden, which was literally stolen.
Finally, Trump concludes from this deranged sequence of non-events that Joe Biden’s house should be raided by the FBI. Biden’s house is, of course, the White House. So Trump wants the FBI to conduct some sort of search of the White House, looking for an unspecified “treasure trove” of evidence of some imaginary crime. And he doesn’t think there’s anything semi-fascist about that?
Evidence of Trump’s authoritarian aspirations are revealed more clearly with every passing day. He couldn’t care less about the laws that he is brazenly violating, whether having to do with his election interference, his finances and taxes, or his hoarding of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago bunker. He regards himself as above the law. And by that he means the law of man and God.
